Default Woo Hoo - Got me a donor!

Got a call back today from a bloke I spoke to last week. I was walking past his house, and noticed a sierra estate parked without tax on his drive. I was feeling cheeky, so knocked on his door and said I would like to buy it. He said he couldn't let it go for less than 250 - I said call me when it gets to 100! He rang today, and we settled on 125 - well happy! Got a few days of stripping ahead of me now - that sounds wrong doesn't it?!

Cheers

Adrian

Let the fun begin!! One important tool for the job - a 4ft length of suitable steel tube to put over the end of your wrench & help undo those more stuborn nuts

Also don't forget the 3in1, the WD40 and a good pair of gloves to protect the knuckles.

Picked my donor up today, paid the money, got it home, looked in the glove box and found 15 in 1 coins! Then had a proper good look around it - very hard to do where it had been - and discovered that it has a disc rear end - bonus! A good day's buying!

Bad points - it's an auto, with an 1800 cvh engine and ABS so now looking for a zetec, a type 9 and a master cylinder.

Cheers

Adrian
